Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.
What is a "starter coil"?
Where did you purchase this coil from and did you tell them it was for a 61 corvette? Is this the original engine? Original ignition?
The secondary voltage or spark is directly proportionate to the primary wiring so any change in the primary will result in a weaker or stronger spark.
I see the 61 corvette had either a 4 bbl carb or was fuel injected. Which is this?
Send it back and get the correct one.
Did you get another ignition coil?
Great, Don't forget to rate me well, so I get credit. If you don't the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.
